3 Interdisciplinary Studies and Business Studies Michael A. Goldberg, #GD2B, February 15, 2013 Definition: –The term interdisciplinary is used to describe an approach to learning and knowledge that integrates and benefits from the understanding and application of the approaches of different subjects and disciplines. –In other words, mixing two or more courses to make another. 1. What is Interdisciplinary Studies? (Source: The Ontario Curriculum: Grades 11 and 12. Interdisciplinary Studies. MOE. Page 4.)

4 Interdisciplinary Studies and Business Studies Michael A. Goldberg, #GD2B, February 15, 2013 Three course codes approved by the MOE: –IDC3O –IDC4O –IDC4U (prerequisite: any 3U course) Course code rules –Trillium accepts only unique course codes Students can only take a maximum of three IDC courses (that can be recognized as a part of their diploma) Interdisciplinary Studies Rules

Goldberg, #GD2B, February 15, 2013 All three course codes (courses) have three strands: 1.Theory and Foundation 2.Processes and Methods of Research 3.Implementation, Evaluation, Impacts, and Consequences The expectations from these strands are combined with the expectations from the contributing courses to form units of study Interdisciplinary Studies Rules
